The Seven Deadly Sins manga reached its end at the beginning of this year and finally concluded the long battle between the Demon King and the Seven Deadly Sins. During this time, the majority of characters have powered up and revealed their true strength.
In this list, I will be ranking the top ten Seven Deadly Sins characters, according to me.
Anime watchers beware, this article has a lot of spoilers.
The Original Demon was the first demon created by the Demon King prior to the formation of the Ten Commandments. It was to rule the Underworld in demon King’s stead until the Original Demon rebelled against the Demon King and got defeated.
After its defeat, the Demon King split the Original Demon into two extremely strong demons: Chandler the ‘Pacifier Fiend’ and Cusack the ‘Napping Reaper.’
After this Chandler and Cusack were tasked to teach the two sons of Demon King Meliodas and Zeldris respectively. Despite that, his power is immense.
He was capable of dispersing the massive sphere of darkness created by Meliodas with his magic power alone, even after the latter absorbed five Commandments.
Original Demon possesses immense physical strength, as shown when he easily fights on par with Escanor at full power in a physical duel, overwhelms him, and can withstand multiple attacks from Ludociel, leader of the Four Archangels.
He is ranked at the 10th place mainly due to his ability that allows his power to continuously increase while taking damage.
King is the Grizzly’s Sin of Sloth of the Seven Deadly Sins. His real name is Fairy King Harlequin, and he is the protector of the Fairy King’s Forest and the Fairy Realm.
As the current and most powerful Fairy King in all of history, he is extremely powerful.
After going through the trial and his wings finally growing, King’s power increased significantly, allowing him to freely access the Sacred Tree’s real power and Sacred Treasure. This allowed him not only to overpower Mael with his Chastiefol but also to use multiple forms simultaneously.
Despite lacking physical strength, King makes up for it with his sacred treasure, Spirit Spear Chastiefol, and his immense level of magic power. He ranks 9th on this list.
Escanor is the Lion’s Sin of Pride of the Seven Deadly Sins and the man known throughout the Kingdom of Liones as “The Strongest Holy Knight”. He hasSunshine’s ability, which makes him immensely powerful during the day but even weaker than an average human at night.
While he is the weakest amongst all holy knights at midnight, starting from dawn, his power level begins to rise steadily from one hour to the next until it peaks at noon.
During noon, when his power is at its peak for one minute, he becomes the manifestation of power itself,and his body dwarfs ordinary people. In this form, he is said to be invincible.
However, due to his fluctuating power levels, Escanor is placed in the 8th place.
Zeldris is the leader and Piety of the Ten Commandments. He is the second son of the Demon King and the younger brother of Meliodas.
He is an extremely powerful demon whose aura alone terrified Arthur Pendragon. Even Cusack and Chandler, the two highest-ranked demons, feared his original magic power with the former, stating that Zeldris was destined to surpass him.
After being lent the Demon King’s power, Zeldris became incredibly strong and was shown capable of suppressing even someone as powerful as the Giant King Drole.
He is exceedingly skilled in combat due to being trained by both Cusack and Meliodas and was able to single-handedly lay waste to Camelot’s entire military forces without sustaining any injury. Zeldris’ strength and power place him in 7th place.
Mael is one of the Four Archangels of the Goddess Clan. However, during the Holy War 3,000 years ago, a certain person reforged Mael’s memories and gave him a new identity as Estarossa – a member of the Ten Commandments and the second son of the Demon King.
As an Archangel, Mael is extremely powerful. Despite being initially weak, he possessed immense potential and became the strongest among them. After Meliodas’ betrayal of the Demon Clan, Gowther was forced to convert him into Estarossa to tilt the power balance of the war in favor of the Demon Clan.
Possessing the Commandments of Love, Truth and Reticence has granted him tremendous dark powers while also retaining the vast light powers he possessed. He also has become immune to both the powers of the Goddess Clan and Demon Clan.
Mael is also the original wielder of Sunshine, and when his Grace reaches its maximum at high noon, he is almost invincible. Due to this, he is the strongest Archangel and ranked 6th in this list.
Ban is the Fox’s Sin of Greed of the Seven Deadly Sins. He is known for his power, Snatch, and formerly his immortality, which he gained from the Elixir of Life, which he gave up to revive Elaine from death.
After his success in the Purgatory, his body became extraordinarily resilient, and his ability evolved. His physique has changed and adapted so much that even after losing his immortality, he was completely unharmed from the Demon King’s energy storm.
Ban’s power level is expected to be somewhere around 700,000, making him the fifth most power character in the series.
The Supreme Deity is the ruler and creator of the Goddess Clan and the mother of the original Elizabeth. She is the one who created and granted the Graces to the Four Archangels.
The Supreme Deity is incredibly powerful, and the most powerful goddess in existence. A testament to her immense strength is her ten wings, unlike the four wings of other goddesses. According to Meliodas, she is the only known being who can rival the Demon King.
Her might in battle is terrifying, as she easily overpowers and kills Meliodas in the Holy War. She is seen as capable of controlling all the elements in nature and manipulating them. The Supreme Deity is also immune to any type of dark curses, even those from the Demon King’s Commandments.
However, despite her immense strength, she is surpassed by Chaos, who created her alongside the Demon King and the Sacred Tree. Therefore, she is only placed 4th on this list.
3The Demon King
The Demon King was the ruler of the Demon Clan and the one who formed the Ten Commandments. He is the father of Meliodas and Zeldris, two of the most powerful demons.
As the ruler, the Demon King contains terrifyingly massive amounts of power, and just possessing a fraction of his power made the Ten Commandments the strongest demons in existence. The Supreme Deity was the only being whose level of power was equivalent to his.
He contained unparalleled might in battle even after delivering half of his power. He was also capable of single-handedly stopping the Vampire Clan’s rebellion, defeating and leaving them at the mercy of his executioner Zeldris. Only Meliodas, who assimilated the Ten Commandments, was able to defeat him. Due to this, the Demon King is placed 3rd in this list.
Meliodas is the Dragon’s Sin of Wrath and captain of the Seven Deadly Sins and the strongest of seven sins. He was also the head of the Ten Commandments and the eldest son of the Demon King. His Sacred Treasure is the Demon Sword Lostvayne, and his innate power is Full Counter.
With only a fraction of his power returned, he easily defeated members of the legendary Ten Commandments. His strength was so great that it eclipsed even the mighty Four Archangels.
An example of his immense combat skills is when he overwhelmed both the ancient Fairy and Giant Kings, Gloxinia and Drole simultaneously. In fact, upon becoming serious, he could defend himself against his father for a brief period before being subdued.
Chaos, currently Arthur Pendragon, is an extraordinarily powerful entity and the strongest character in Seven Deadly Sins. It created the world and god-like beings, such as Supreme Deity, Demon King, and Sacred Tree, out of nothing on a whim.
It required the combined power of the Demon King and the Supreme Deity to seal it, after which it came to exist within a transient form. Eventually, it chose Arthur Pendragon to be the rightful “King of Chaos” and inherit its power for whatever he wished to use it for. Chaos is the strongest entity in this series.
